Leading bird scientists Erich Jarvis
and Irene Pepperberg
explore how striking parallels between bird and human brains are providing new insights into how we acquire language and links between hearing and movement. Neurobiologist Erich Jarvis leads a Duke University team that studies how songbirds, parrots, and hummingbirds learn and pass along new sounds. Irene Pepperberg is adjunct associate professor at Brandeis University and research associate and lecturer at Harvard, and the author of Alex and Me.
